Matobo National Park, Zimbabwe

Matobo

The Matobo Hills are famous for the unique geological formations of balancing boulders, excellent rhino populations and ancient rock art.

Set within an easy drive of Bulawayo, the Matobos offer a complete contrast to your usual savannah safari.

This is as much about the scenery and the history, as it is about wildlife. Cecil Rhodes’ grave at World’s View is a popular stopping point, with beautiful views across this extraordinary region.

A little more about Matobo

These hills have been the spiritual stronghold of the San bush people for centuries and convey an air of spirituality and timelessness.

High up above, circle the highest concentration of black eagles in the world and amongst the rocks are leopards, klipspringer and both black and white rhinos. The landscape and its accompanying fauna are magically different.

Illona Cross

Born in a small South African town, I have always followed my passion for nature and discovery. After studying Nature Conservation in Pretoria, I was one of the first women to complete a very tough cadetship in the Natal Parks Board. It was here where I cut my teeth in African wildlife management.

Chris Johnston

Chris is the Conde Nast Traveller chosen Specialist for Africa.

25 years ago, my first trip to Africa took on a life of its own. I planned for three months, I stayed for two years. Whilst there, I was mistaken for a priest, attacked by sharks and arrested. Yet the countless, clattering journeys opened my eyes to the beauty of the landscapes and the grace of the people. My recent trips are undoubtedly more comfortable, but the welcome is as warm as ever and the best experiences are still those I never see coming.
